NHTSA does not recognize the recalls on my 2004 BMW 325xi 4dr sedan. There were 2 recalls that are related to air bags. The NHTSA campaign numbers are #15V318000 and #14V428000. I would like to receive official confirmation that these recalls are valid so I can get the manufacturer to fix this. Please see the supporting docs attached. Also, I have been having weird electrical issues happening to the point the car wont shut off at times, headlights go out after a day, turn signal goes out, car dies, stereo wont work etc. I was wondering if other recalls were placed on this car as well?

Takata recall I have requested since May 2015-novemebr 2017 a repair to this recall. My car was on a mountain going uphill and it stalled out and made flickering. It was towed to BMW sealership who kept the car for almost three months and could not fix. I called BMW to no resolution. The car was in motion going up a hill.

Takata recall. Recall 15V-318 and 14V-428 are recalls that I cannot get repaired. I have called customer relations twice without a response. I have called wichita luxury collections 1-316-719-8300 since May 2015 and July 2015 and they still do not have parts. I expect better service.if they take this recall seriously.

Takata recall first the passenger side airbag was recalled, after waiting over one year, it was removed and replaced. Now the driver's airbag has been recalled. We responded immediately. We have been waiting for over two years! no contact, no replacement. We continue to live in peril of the lethal deployment of the defective airbag and BMW just says wait?
